Books: 'G' books

By Giles Andreae & Guy Parker-Rees
One of the best-loved children's rhyming ale, this is about Gerald the giraffe who really wants to dance but can't because his knees are crooked and his legs are thin. The other animals make fun of him at the annual Jungle Dance, but with encouragement from an unlikely source (a cricket), glum Gerald discovers that he too can dance - he just needed to find music that he loves. This is a great book as it shows that everyone can be wonderful.

An interactive lift-the-flap book using rhymes. As the book is read and you travel through the jungle, rhymes are used to describe the characteristics of different animals, which are hidden behind the flaps. Sound effects can be made along with the rhymes too. An example is: 

My tail is long,
I've knobbly knees.
I like to swing high in the trees!
I'm the cheeky.... Monkey!

By Andrew Davenport
Based on the popular series on BBC's CBeebies, this lift-the-flap touch & feel book features all the characters from In The Night Garden. EV loves watching this, so she enjoyed the book very much, where characters like Makka Pakka and Upsy Daisy are having a game of hide-and-seek. Large text and colourful pictures make this a delightful read.
